The Festival Mass Choir is directed by Jonathan E. L. Wall and is made up of singers representing high schools and academies from across the country. The Festival Choir has the privilege of performing a wondrous array of music that every year ranges from masterworks and traditional favorites to new and exciting choral literature. This year the Mass Choir will perform the World Premiere of award winning Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds newest choral work. In addition to the premier, the choral repertoire features the Sanctus & Benedictus from Charles Gounod's St. Cecilia Mass with mezzo-soprano Raehann Bryce-Davis, How Great Thou Art by Dan Forrest, Glory, Glory Hallelujah by Howard Helvey and choral masterpiece the Cantique de Jean Racine by Gabriel Fauré.
All singers must submit a completed application with their audition to be considered for inclusion into the Festival Choir.
Each audition should be recorded as a video and should feature only the singers audio. If musicians auditioning would like to use the "All Parts Together" track, they may record the audition using headphones.
